Oliver Loving to Francis Lubbock, 1862

I could exterminate the Indians
who have for so many years depre-
dated on this frontier.

I desire to start about the first of
June, In the talk I had with
Col. Norris I thought he was dis-
posed to listen to the suggestions
and he is now preparing to make
an expedition. I hope this matter
will receive your verry best reflection
and that you may be able to
assist in the matter -- in other
words give me authority to raise
the men an if that cannot be done
then assist in any way that can
be done to effect the object sought

Respectfully etc
Oliver Loving
